Infinity began as Dixie Insurance Co. in Anniston, Alabama, in 1955. The company expanded to serve clients in 43 states, eventually becoming the second-largest writer of nonstandard automobile insurance. Dixie Insurance Co. changed its name to Infinity in 1978 before American Premier Underwriters purchased the company in 1991. In 1995, American Premier Underwriters joined American Financial Corp. to become American Financial Group (AFG).
AFG transferred all common stock of Infinity and its sister companies to Infinity Property & Casualty Corp. (IPCC) in 2002. In 2003, IPCC became a publicly traded company. Kemper Insurance, one of the nation’s largest specialized insurers, acquired Infinity in 2018.4 It serves over 6 million policies with over 33,000 agents and brokers. Post-acquisition, most auto insurance policies migrated under the Kemper brand except in California, where more than half of Infinity’s business took place.
